 Both "/Archives" and "Archives" are valid selector strings.
 The standard doesn't/shouldn't say anything about selectors, other than
specifying the set of valid characters in them; that a selector happens
to refer to a file system is completely coincidental. You cannot rely on
the structure of their contents in any way whatsoever.
